Although there are different ways to make the route, the most well known is from Es Capdellà -a small town that is part of the municipality of Calviá- continuing along a well marked road, which takes about an hour until you reach a farm estate where you can find places to eat and spend the day.
A trip of moderate difficulty that requires a certain amount of physical preparation, its 1,364m give you a changing landscape full of natural beauty. This typical route begins in the town of Lluc, in the municipality of Escorca, with a tough climb through Comafreda. The change of landscape from the beginning with a green wood, to the top, with a rugged, rocky terrain, is a journey through the island’s most characteristic natural landmarks. The trip takes about three hours to ascend and two to descend.
